No, I’m not going to shut the site down and send the whole Internet home without its supper if we don’t get our way. That isn’t how this works. I can’t scare you with tales of server expenses and, I dunno, a new gas grill because mine got knocked over in the rain or something.
What I can tell you is that your contributions are a vote of confidence in what we’re building here. An independent place for commentary, discussion, fun, and good. A place for people who don’t just want to bitch about stuff. A place for people who want to make things better. A place to tell each other to get back up, and to figure out how.
Your contributions tell me that that’s something you think is worth doing every day, worth getting up and writing for, worth maintaining right down to the Freeper sewers and the filters full of Chinese porno spam. Your tips mean we can do what we want to do here, but they also mean you want us to keep doing it.
Hit the tip jar.We’re about a third of the way to our fundraising goal. I’d like to see us get there. I’d like to hear you think it’s worth it.
